Throughout the ’80s and ’90s the Bread and Puppet Theater’s Domestic Resurrection Circus festival was a regular part of our summer. 1998 was the last year for the big fest, and we hadn’t gone since then. Then this last August we made the trek up to Glover in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom.
I am happy to report that everything is as it was. The Museum is still there. There is a big new theater. Peter Schumann is baking bread, creating plays and walking on his tall stilts in the Circus. On the weekends in July and August, there is a Friday night drama in the new theater, and the Circus and Pageant is on Sunday.
